On the surface the concept sounds reasonable enough, but in practice its effects are evil and sinister and do not reflect real life conditions.
In the real world words mean something, people are responsible for their actions and this responsibility does not diminish in a mere 24 hours.
The operator of the site where "Flame N' Blame" is located is convinced that he is providing a public service and maybe so. You may ask, Joe why should you care what goes on over there? Good question, I care because "Flame N' Blame" is a place where it is OK to bash and deride NACHI AND where many do not have access to be able to respond and defend our cause. I have decided that NACHI is no longer "fair game" and will not tolerate the public derision of NACHI on other forums, especially forums that allow comments that magically disappear in 24 hours.
Furthermore I will make it my business to monitor other forums and copy offending comments to this board to make sure that the words do not magically disappear so all might be able to see just what was said and by who. I see this stand much like the zero-tolerance policy that then mayor Rudy Giuliani took against graffiti in New York City, he rooted it out and removed it everywhere and it was successful.
